Greek Life: You won't be treated differently for choosing to join a fraternity or sorority

Athletics: There are many athletic facilities available for students

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The campus is very diverse. Professors are experts in their field and care about their students.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The UTPD is always out and about on campus. They are making sure that the students are safe day and night. I feel safe in and around my dorm, and I feel safe walking around during the day. I would not go out at night however. Austin, Texas can be a dangerous place and UT being a Public University, anyone is allowed on campus at anytime.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have had some great professors, and I have also had some not so great ones. The ones in my experience, who were not as great, seemed to be only interested in their own research. They also were intro class professors, so I believe they just wanted students in and out. On the other hand, I have had professors who are very interested in their field and explain in amazing detail. They make the class interesting, and it really has made a difference in the way I view the workload.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The future career prospects and the network of UT has been made to sound very prestigious. I can not tell now myself, but i have heard and seen many students who after graduation get amazing job opportunities. I really hope this is the case in the future for me. The quality of the career centers are great. There are endless job fairs going on for all different fields, and they seem interested in finding the best jobs for their UT students.

Campus Housing: I love living in the dorms. I currently live in Kinsolving, which is starting to become one of the best places to live, in my opinion. It is a bit of a walk from most of my classes, but there is a market, a dining hall, and a coffee shop all in this dorm. It makes things very convenient, and I am able to stay over on the North side of campus and have everything I need. The social atmosphere is great. There are events going on every week. The rooms are kind of small, and there is limited washer/dryers. But overall it is a great place to live, close enough to Campus, and has great amenities.

Greek Life: From what I know, Greek life is very much a big part of UT. There are a lot of students who will come just to be a part of Greek Life. My roommate at Orientation came from California to join a certain sorority. I seem them on campus hosting a lot of events and giving back to the community here in Austin, Texas.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: School Spirit is really a big part of this campus. "Everything is bigger in Texas", is a correct statement. Out football team is huge, and has thousands of fans that come from all over, to witness a game. Our band and spirit groups are continuously going out of their way to ensure the spirit of Texas still reigns on. The athletic facilities here, are some of the best in the country. Olympic swimmers come and practice in the Swimming center here at UT. Student involvement is also a big part of Athletics here. Everyone who goes to the games, are dressed in burnt orange, and yelling loud to support all of our teams. The program is growing more every year.

Overall Experience: So far my overall experience at the University of Texas is okay. I really enjoy the diversity of students on this campus. There is always some event going on that appeals to a certain part of the population. UT has really opened my eyes to people of different beliefs and ways of life. The registering process and advising process can be difficult, but i believe that is because the University has thousands of students to give to. I would choose this University over again, if I knew exactly what I would Major in. Being unsure in the beginning made it really difficult to sign up for the right classes and get into the right programs. I was quite lost my first semester trying to find the program that would go along with my Major. I am really starting to grow closer to this University and see the positive outcomes of many students.

Health & Safety: I've never felt particularly unsafe on campus, but I definitely wouldn't say I feel safe on campus at night either.

Campus Housing: If I could do it over again, I'd live in the dorms. They're s***ty, but better than The Castilian - my current residence.

Greek Life: Lots of the greeks are nice but they overshadow everything else going on at UT at all times

5 College Freshman

Athletics: If sports are important to you, than UT is a good place to be. Sports are taken very seriously here.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I wouldn't recommend going to the University of Texas unless you plan on going greek. There is life outside of greek life here, but you'd be kidding yourself if you said the school didn't still revolve around greek life and events.

Health & Safety: Throughout the daytime and nighttime during the week, the UTPD is always monitoring the campus to make sure it is a safe learning environment for everyone!

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: The coursework at this university can definitely be overwhelming, but not impossible. The professors I have dealt with are passionate, hard working, and motivating people who challenge their students academically; great faculty in this university!

5 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I was blessed with the opportunity to study in one of the best public universities in the entire world! Through alumni networking and the value of a degree from this school, the chances of getting a secured job is high.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: Housing is a bit pricey and my dorm is a little too far from my classes. It was a good experience to live in a dorm my first year here, but I definitely will be moving to an apartment next year.

Greek Life: Unfortunately, the university itself is not in unison as much as it could be because of Greek life but Greek life is a great way to get involved with community service while also getting the chance to meet a lot of interesting people!

4 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: School spirit is vital when you are a student at the University of Texas at Austin. The stadium and courts are always filled with students, faculty, and parents in their burnt orange and white in full support of the school!

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: My school is diverse and filled with many ambitious people from various different backgrounds. The learning environment, school spirit, Greek life, and overall college experience at the University of Texas at Austin is great.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I don't really know much only that they have a lot of parties

Most students agree that they have loved their time here at UT, and they wouldn’t want to be anywhere else. College is the best time of your life, and I can’t think of a better place to spend it than at the University of Texas. Students get a great education while having an awesome college town with everything at their disposal. Don’t try to graduate early. Enjoy your time at UT—go cheer on the Longhorns at all the home games for all sports: football, basketball, baseball, intramurals. See the amenities that the Forty Acres has to offer—the Harry Ransom Center, go to our libraries and see our more than eight million volumes. Go to Gregory Gym and the Rec Center—you have a free gym membership for four years or more—use it.

I came to UT convinced that I was going to transfer to a school in California in the spring. I spent two days here before school started and I never wanted to leave, even to go home and visit my parents and high school friends! I couldn’t leave because I was always afraid that I would miss something because there was always something exciting going on. If you are worried about the fact that UT is so big, don’t. All you have to do is find your niche, and everything else should fall into place. You can find it within your dorm, apartment, organization, fraternity, sorority, or classmates. Although, at times, it may seem overwhelming, UT is not nearly as big as it sounds. All you have to do is make friends, which you will, and the campus will seem infinitely smaller. Come join us!
